Mayfield Park / Community Project

MP/CP is a volunteer group dedicated to restoring and improving Mayfield Park. The Mayfield Council is an advisory group within the MP/CP and meets monthly to discuss Mayfield Park-related projects.  Both groups work very closely with PARD,  The MP/CP has been active at Mayfield Park since the mid-1980s.

Vision: Mayfield Park/Community Project, sponsored by Friends of the Parks of Austin, a non-profit corporation, is restoring Mayfield Cottage and Gardens to the height of its development in the era of the 1920’s-1950’s. Funds have been raised through grants, foundations, and individuals since 1986. Working from a preservation master plan, restoration phases are proceeding as funds become available. The park is under the supervision of the Austin Parks and Recreation Department.

Park visitors can view the history at Mayfield Park with the new sign at the entrance:
